Alright, let's broaden our minds and get a little culture going on here - and let's do it for free. Today is the seventh annual free admission Museum Day sponsored by Smithsonian Magazine.

Museum Day is a day when museums and cultural institutions nationwide open their doors free of charge to Smithsonian magazine readers and Smithsonian.com visitors. All you have to do is bring a Smithsonian Magazine’s Museum Day admission ticket to get free admission for up to two people. The ticket is available in the September issue of Smithsonian Magazine or at the Museum Day website.

If you'd like to visit a local museum, the Stearns History Museum and the Sherburne History Center (along with a dozen other museums in Minnesota) are participating.
